Departments and Programs

The University of Notre Dame offers post-baccalaureate degrees in the divisions of engineering, humanities, science, and social sciences, and in the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE). Most graduate programs admit students primarily to their doctoral programs, although master’s degrees may be earned on the way to the Ph.D.

Master’s-Only Programs

Students are admitted directly to traditional master’s degree programs in Art, Art History, and Design; Classics; Creative Writing; Early Christian Studies; Peace Studies; Romance Languages and Literatures; and Theology. Professional master’s degrees are available in ACE; Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics; Global Health; and Patent Law.

Programs Outside of the Graduate School

Advanced degrees in architecture, law, and business are administered separately by the School of Architecture, Law School and Mendoza College of Business, respectively. Similarly, the Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence Master’s Program (ESTEEM) is administered by the colleges of business, engineering, and science.
